        SANDUSKY, Ohio — A driver was high on amphetamines when he crashed into a State Highway Patrol cruiser, killing a 24-year-old trooper, the patrol said Thursday.

        Trooper Robert Perez, 24, was filling out paperwork during a traffic stop May 12 in Erie County east of Toledo when his car was struck from behind.

        George Tenney, 23, of Pittsburgh, drove into the back of the patrol car. He sat down in the middle of the road and was struck and killed by another car.

        Mr. Tenney had been using amphetamines before the crash, Lucas County Coroner James Patrick ruled, according to the patrol's final report.
